In the recent Hakira (34) there was an exchange concerning R Y Karo’s
authorial/intent in writing the S”A. R M Shapiro uses the introduction to
the S”A to show “ his purpose was to write a practical halachic work”. R A
Storch felt the purpose was, “a tool to remember the information contained
in the Bet Yosef”.
I think R Shapiro’s position is more widely held but I always wonder why
then didn’t the S”A stick more to apodictic laws rather than so many yesh
omrims etc? Thoughts?
